Ahoy-hoy, lipstick lovers, have I got news for you. Two years after the launch of their uh-mazing Revolution lipstick line, a pigment-loaded satin-creme formula that seriously blew me away, Urban Decay is adding a matte version to its permanent collection.
I was given Tilt (described as a ‘matte bright orange’), and Menace (a ‘matte medium fuchsia pink’) to play with, and they were the only lip products I brought with me to London this weekend. I didn’t even bring a lip balm, and as my lips are never in great shape after flying, that was a kinda dumbass move. So how did I get on?
Tilt is a warm, coral orange that has a lovely, velvety finish and is opaque in just one swipe. It covers the lips evenly and smoothly and lasted through dinner and several cocktails before I needed to touch up. It’s definitely in the modern-matte camp which is to say, it has a slightly satin formula – which is what makes it so darned easy to wear.
Tilt has a little bit of sheen, but much less so than any of the original Revolution lippies that I tried (which you can see in action here), and the pigmentation is seriously impressive. I loved it – so much so, that Menace didn’t get a look in (but keep an eye on my Instagram or Snapchat – I’m fluffyblog on both - as it will get an outing very soon). The packaging – a pearlescent black – is handbag friendly and differentiates it from the original and Sheer varieties.
If you’re a fan of the NARS Audacious lipsticks, these will be right up your alley – and at €19, the price is very pocket friendly for a little slice of high-end, luxury beauty. Are we liking?
